10 Years of WAT Fundraiser
Take a look at the roster of Melbourne-based booking and management agency WAT Artists (formerly known as Waving at Trains) and you’ll see the remarkable influence it’s had in shaping the careers of the city’s electronic music luminaries, groove-led bands and DJs. Melbourne’s most forward-thinking dance floors, festivals and day parties have all hosted WAT alumni, from avant-pop-artist Sui Zhen, to psychedelic groovers Mildlife and beloved DJs such as Wax’o Paradiso and Millú.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary WAT Artists is hosting a three-room fundraiser featuring the previously listed artists as well as Sleep D, Merve, Loure and Noise In My Head, among others.
Each of the three rooms at Chasers Nightclub will be given over to specific types of WAT artists: there’s a live band room, a sweaty club for the DJs and space for experimental electronic noodlers. And profits from the night will go to The Song Room, a not-for-profit providing music to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The line-up’s too long to list here, and a real doozy, so head to the Facebook event page for more info. Best value gig of the month.
